    Let's point and laugh at the Dolphins. Don Shula wants an asterisk next to MY PATRIOTS if they go 19-0 for cheating.

    Well, DON...

    Miami Dolphins

    [edit] 1970-1973

    After the 1969 season, Joe Robbie, owner of the Miami Dolphins, signed Shula to a contract to become Miami's second head coach. As a result of Shula's signing the team was charged with tampering by the NFL, which forced the Dolphins to give their first round pick to the Colts.



    Hey Don, there won't be an asterisk next to the Dolphin's 0-16 season... so sleep well.

    LOSER!

    Is there an asterisk next to the 72 dolphins who were busted for tampering?

    IS THERE?!

    Also, everyone seems to think this is an isolated thing that only the Pats did... it's not. Just last year the Pats asked the Jet's camera man to move from where he was.

    Jets decided to go a step further and called in the NFL league. Carma is taking care of the jets for being little hypocritical snitches... as you can see from their record.

    You can't attribute everything the Pats are doing to cheating, you're foolish of you do. Most every team steals signs, and that's not making any of them the dominant team that NE is.

    You are calling Don Shula a loser?

    Man, you have some misdirected annymosity

    Listening to you defend the patriots is like listening to Bonds claim he is the fall guy for performance enhancing drugs. The argument is the same and it is simple:

    There was cheating
    You were caught
    It taints ALL of your accomplishments.

    So you believe the 72 Dolphin's accomplishments are tainted too... right?

    Bonds was NEVER caught cheating... news update for you.

    It seems obivous to me that they will have to asterisk the season if the pats should go undefeated.

    Bonds was never caught cheating?
    (1) his head size grew
    (2) his body type changed
    (3) he was indicted
    (4) Sheffield admits he got steriods from him
    (5) his homerun output doubled at a time when traditional home runs decrease
    (6) it is all documented in a book written by award winning journalists
    (7) his buddy is in jail because he refuse to testify truthfully about his dealings with Bonds

    I am not sure what proof means to you. But at any rate, the Patriots were "convicted" of cheating and whether you like it or not cheating taints their accomplishments.

    How dare the hypocritical cheats 'New England Partiots' so viciously attack the holy choir boys of the NFL, The 'Indianapolis Colts' of playing electronically enhanced crowd noise. When a sports network accidentally sent out feedback on the air that never made it in the stadium. What a bunch of cry babies. The Cowboys are going to kick the * out of the Pats for picking on the Colts. No Cowboy is going to stand back and watch a horse get abused by a thug in a hoodie.

    WHY?

    They did 'the crime' and they did "the time". They never even got to see the footage, it was confiscated before the Pats ever saw it.

    Listen, you're being foolish.

    *shakes head in disgust!

    Because they cheated. You have to differentiate the record somehow from the Dolphins fantabulous accomplishment which was done without the aid of illegal wiretapping.

    Didn't Nixon get in trouble for that?

    Patriotgate...that's what we should call it!

    Oh come on. They got caught in the 1st quarter of the 1st game. Are you saying that getting caught with a vidoetape of the Jets defensive signals in the 1st quarter of week one would somehow illegitimize an undefeated season. Talk about making a mountain out of a molehill.

    Now you're accusing the Patriots of illegal wiretapping and comparing them to Nixon. Nice! Get out much?

    This article says the Dolphins were charged with tampering for signing Shula after the '69 season. Forgive me, but where does it say the fins were cheating in '72?

    Now really, I didn't see you as someone this desparate Phabladibitt


    You know my Grandmother wrote a bad check in 1952. That MUST mean I'm a thief!!!
